Breed Group: Not AKC Recognized
Poodle dog breed information. We've recently added the dog breed Poodle to nextdaypets.com. Please contact us if you would like to submit a detailed Poodle breed profile or breed picture. Here's your chance to educate dog lovers on the Poodle breed. We'll even pay you if your profile is the one selected.
Help reduce the number of Miniature Poodle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The only way to know if your dog is a pure-bred or what breeds make up your dog is to have your dog DNA tested. You can buy them online or at your vet for an average cost of $45.00 - $85.00.

Unless you are under the study of a reputable and experienced breeder, you should NOT be birthing the puppies by yourself. You NEED someone experienced there, such as a breeder or vet. Please have your dog C-sectioned if you can not have a vet present throughout the birth. Birthing puppies is very dangerous and you are risking the lives of those puppies and your dam if you do not do everything right. At Day 55 - 57, you need to do an X-ray with your vet!

She is a great dog, however, I am concerned that she is not energetic. We have had her for about 10 weeks. We walk her twice a day for about 30 minutes. She eats well but, otherwise she mostly sleeps. She refuses to fetch or be engaged for play. But, does enjoy affection. Should I be concerned?

AnonymousHow to stop a poodle from licking his foot (I understand it is his pacifier)
8/13/2012 4:39:46 AM
Did you ever get a reply? My dog does the same thing and it drives me nuts. However, I've never heard it was their "pacifier". If that is true, then I will just tolerate it. I guess, I kinda have to since she's 10 years old and has done it all her life. It just sometimes makes me wonder if there is something wrong. By the way, if you like, you may e-mail me directly at:
All I know is when the day comes that she passes away, it will be a very sad time in my life probably for months if not a year or more.

Just love him and enjoy him. All dogs do things different. I had a schnauzer I had for 11 years and we had to let him go. And we have the funny memeroies with him and the scarry ones. Just love and care for him. Good luck on your dog. He knows who you are and he loves you as much as you love him
10/28/2012 2:13:14 AM
SOMETIMES this is, indeed, a "stress reliever", but far more often, foot lickingis an indication of allergies. If your dog also sufferes chronic ear irritation or itching, odds are, he/she has allergies.
Allergies are extemely difficult to treat as testing to pinpoint specific ones is expensive. It would likely be easiest to start with the assumption that your dog has a food allergy. Chicken, Beef and grain glutens are the most common.
Try eliminating these, one at a time, from your dog's diet. Be patient, it may take weeks/months for you to notice any difference, but be vigilant. No treats etc. containing whichever product you are eliminating from the diet.
If the problem IS stress related, try to offer your dog a variety of chew toys. Many dogs chew as a "stress reliver" but may become bored with the same old chew toy.
Hope this is helpful.

AnonymousWould a female or a male poodle have a better temperment? I'm just not sure.
7/10/2012 7:34:52 PM
I've always had female poodles.
It's kinda like a guy once told me about his dog (which by the way was a Boston Terrier) said "males dogs whiz too much". I know it all goes back to their "marking their territory" and even my female does it "OUTSIDE", but I somehow feel a male dog would do it inside. Although, my mothers dog is male (a wire haired Dauschaund) and he doesn't mark his territory inside, then again...the only other dog that ever goes in there is my poodle, and she doesn't mark in the house either.
Somehow, I have the feeling, if another dog came into the house and "marked", then a male dog would feel compelled to leave a marking of his own.
I'm not sure, if neutering makes a difference or not.
9/23/2012 8:54:33 PM
I believe it really depends on the individual dog. I had female poodles all my life until Reilly came into my life. I was under the impression that male dogs weren't as loving and close as female dogs but it couldn't have been more wrong with Reilly. He protected me, comforted me, stayed by my side and did things to make me laugh when I was sad. He learned how to signal me when he sensed a flare in my illness. He was my best friend. While I have two females as well and love them with all my heart.. nothing could replace Reilly. We lost him on Dec 8th of this year due to congestive heart failure and I feel like there is a piece of my heart that died with him. My suggestion is to spend a little time with the litter of puppies and let your heart tell you which one is best for you...not what sex the dog is.

Mine started before she turned a year old. I took her and had her spayed, before her second cycle of going into heat.
I did not want to take any chances of her becoming pregnant with puppies, that I could not take care of or give away (or sell).

2/22/2012 7:47:05 PM
The last two dogs I had did this. One was a schipperke and the last one was a pug. Very frustrating! We gave our pug pills that were supposed to stop it but they didn't work. We finally just walked him twice a day to keep him from doing it.

1/2/2012 3:17:49 PM
it's not that he's being picky as much as he views you as pack leader and in a pack the leader eats first then the others get a share. what you can do is offer him his food at your meal times and not give him any of your food. it's hard to resist the face he'll give you but you have to and it may take a while for him to get the clue as he's been doing this for so long.
1/8/2012 8:29:32 PM
I had (well I still have) the same problem. And everything the previous reply said is true. I think, they really wait to see when we eat then it's okay that they go ahead and eat too.
And of course, she wants what I'm eating. Best way to prevent it, is never feed them what you eat. But I just can't help it, she stands there and stares at me, then shifts from foot to foot, as if her feet are waiting while she's waiting for me to "give her some of what I'm having".
So it's kinda my fault, but she only eats one brand of dog food, and I know she must get tired of it, so I can't help it.

No my cousins poodle is very protective. If I run up to her she chases and bites me - this happens when you make too much noise.
8/26/2012 9:13:07 AM
I think it all depends on how they are raised, and who they have been around and what they are exposed to. For instance, my poodle was never exposed to other dogs, and she gets well kinda viscious, although she has gotten better. But she loves EVERYONE. She will bark when someone is at the door, but once they come in she wags her tail, and tries as hard as she can to get a pet from them. Thank goodness most everyone I encounter are dog people.

Poodles time of conceptioon is called their heat cycle.
They will secrete some blood and their female part will
be swollen. If you pay close attention, from the time it starts,it will last about 3 weeks, most likely day to breed will be on the 13th day.
Most likely they are around 8 to 9 months when this begins.Some younger some older.

1/5/2011 3:35:19 PM
I had a mini poodle as a 10-year old kid and she was the best pet! However, someone gave her to us and she hadn't been well-trained so she had a penchant for chasing cars. But she was a great companion.
1/12/2011 5:50:34 AM
I have a poodle that we have had since he was 8 weeks old. With proper training he is amazing with children. Socializing is very important so your dog is not scared.
2/4/2011 9:16:10 PM
Well, I do not absolutely know if mini poodles are good around kids, but if the age is young, the kids may not be good around them. They can accidently hurt the dog and, if bad enough, could kill it! The child has to be mature and old enough to understand that they can easily hurt the dog!

my mimi poodle is geat around us! we have 5 kids (3 older and 2 babies) and we love her! sometimes, tho, if there is a new person, she growls at them and then warms up to them.
3/25/2012 10:17:55 AM
The Miniature Poodles that we have are great with children, any dog however should be socialized while a puppy to get used to other people and situations. The Miniature Poodles that we have love to play with children. They love to chase balls, go for walks and play with their toys, they also love to be petted and massaged. I personally think a Miniature Poodle makes a great pet for children, especially since they do not have all of the shedding fur that most dogs have, in other words they are cleaner to have around children since your child will not have hair all over their clothes after playing with them. I love them.

There were several breeds that did not put off a dander that caused allergies, like a poodle. Is this still true?
12/26/2010 2:38:25 PM
No dog will be 100% allergy free.
12/27/2010 5:41:52 PM
I am allergic to dogs and cats, but I have a Poodle and A Shih Tzu. Both breeds are considered hypo-allergenic. However as mentioned no dog is 100% allergy-free. The term hypo- means low, it does not mean zero. So there is much less chance that a person will be allergic to one these breeds. Also consider that one could be allergic to shampoos, flea & tick treatments, grass pollen etc etc that may be found on a pet's coat and it may not be the actual dog itself that the person is allergic to.
As long as my dogs are kept clipped and bathed I don't have any problems with allergies to either of them.
1/6/2011 1:33:25 PM
I am also allergic to dogs and I am able to have poodles. They have to have regular baths though and haircuts. Poodles do not shed and are hypo-allergenic. Poodles have hair not fur and people who have allergies to cats, dogs or other animals will not with poodles unless the allergen is to saliva. They do not carry a dog odor. Poodles do need regular brushing and they do require haircuts just like people to keep them mat free. We recommend haircuts every 6-8 weeks or sooner.

Poodles come in teacup,toy,mini and standard. They are a nightmare to groom. And they do better living in the city. They are the second smartest dog breed in the word. The toy and mini poodle might have temperment problems though. :)
12/26/2010 7:07:40 PM
There is actually no such size as teacup. The AKC registered sizes are Toy, Minature and Standard. Poodles are not a nightmare to groom. They may be a little more expensive if you would like a fancy poodle cut, but if trained well and groomed correctly, they are wonderful for it. Poodles are amazingly smart dogs with great temperments. They have the ability to learn but at the same time need to be kept busy and entertained. They are great!

I have a rescue poodle. She was 4-5 mos old when I got her. She was very frighted around people at first and had to follow me everywhere. But, she has adjusted well and is the most loyal pet I have every had. I thought poodles were to be nervous and yappy. Mine is neither, that may be do to what she went through but if mine is the norm. I would recommend this breed.
1/19/2012 5:50:27 PM
Poodles are absolutely awesome dogs. Thy are intelligent and most people that have allergies to other dogs are normally able to have one. I am allergic to most dogs and I have Poodles. I love my Poodles. Poodles come in all sizes and almost every color that you could want. Thy come in Toy, Miniature and Standard sizes. They come in color ranging from white to black and almost anything in between there. I could not recommend a better dog to anyone than a Poodle. I love them. I can kiss them and hug them and they do not bother my allergies. They are truely a blessing. There are also several different hairstyles that they can be groomed in, short or long or any where in between. If they were not such wonderful dogs than the circuses would not have used them for training.

Anonymoushow do you get your poodle to stop humping your legs?
9/15/2010 8:33:48 PM
The first recommendation is neutering your dog. Next you will need to begin training your dog with the goal of establishing yourself as his leader. The more obedient your dog becomes and the more he learns that you are the boss and he is not, the easier it will be to discourage humping behavior.
10/5/2010 10:02:30 AM
Wrap the sent of something your poodle doesnt lke to smell or get him/her a partner.It might be humping your leg because he/she wants a partner to release his or her stress to.
